Demonetization- For Dark Indian Future

Demonetization is a process where the current currency loses its status. The recent demonetization that took place India on 8th November 2016 was a change that brought drastic changes in all the sectors on a global level.

The launch of new 2000 and 500 rupee notes caused a real chaos in the minds of the public and in the business market. The idea behind this step was to remove black money once and for all, and to expose whoever had this black money hidden with them.

The situation that occurred in the company were extreme. Daily there would be a long queue of public depositing their old 1000 and 500 rupee notes in exchange of the new ones. There were problems when money was not available in the bank and people who have been standing in line for the whole have been disappointed.

4 P’s of Marketing Mix (product, price, place, promotion)

The Marketing mix is a set of four decisions (product, price, place, promotion) which needs to be taken before launching any new product. Marketing is simplistically defined as ‘putting the right product in the right place, at the right price, at the right time.’ Though this sounds like an easy enough proposition, a lot of hard work needs to go into finding out what customers want, and identifying where they do their shopping. Then you need to figure out how to produce the item at a price that represents value to them, and get it all to come together at the critical time. But if you get just one element wrong, it can spell disaster. You could be left promoting a car with amazing fuel economy in a country where fuel is very cheap, or publishing a textbook after the start of the new school year, or selling an item at a price that’s too high or too low  to attract the people you’re targeting.

What is the Suwalki Gap? Why it could be the flash point between Russia and Nato?

It’s one of the most tranquil corners of Europe. Quiet country roads lead through pristine and unsoiled towns, glide past lakes and wind their way around virginal forests bespeckled with oak and spruce.

But defence watchers say this thin strip of land, fully within the European Union, could be a flash point of future military action between Russia and the US. A strategic affairs analyst has even raised the prospect that an emboldened Russia, intent on pushing the Washington-led NATO military alliance away from its territory, could drop a nuclear bomb on the isolated sliver of land.

Known as the ‘Suwalki Gap’, this 80 km patch of relatively flat, difficult to defend countryside, straddles Poland and Lithuania.It is the only land connection between the Baltic states of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia — all of which are in the EU and NATO — and their European allies.

What’s happening in UEFA Champions league?

Today, the Uefa Champion’s League semi-final draw took place at Uefa headquarters in Myon, Switzerland. For the fourth straight year, the bitter Madrid rivals have been drawn against each other. Both the teams were finalists in 2014 and 2016 and also faced one another in the 2015. The Madrid derby is a repeat of two of the last three finals, both won by Real in dramatic circumstances: they prevailed on penalties in 2016, while Atletico were moments away from winning the 2014 edition, before Real came back to claim the trophy in extra-time with the famous Sergio Ramos header in the 93rd minute. The Whites will play the first leg of the tie at home on the 2nd of May, and the return leg will take place at the Vicente Calderón on the 10th of the same month.
